    Lanita Thank you for sharing this with me. It brought back memories. My mom used to sing “I Was Looking Back to See” when i was growing up. We also learned of the “Great Green Gobs of Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts” song. I think that was just about the time that my brother discovered Steve Martin and Richard Pryer’s comedy albums.

    Daddy always sang “in the pines, in the pines where the sun never shines and shivers when the cold wind blows” while we were traveling. Your father introduced me to a hymn that I often sing to myself…”Life is Like a Mountain Railway.” Singing makes me happy, even if it a a sad song. Grandmother Ralph’s favorite was “How Great Thou Art.” I’ll finish with another favorite “Zippity do dah!”

    My immediate family didn’t sing out loud, but they provided every opportunity for me to be musical. I always enjoyed being part of your extended family and the impromptu singing.

    My high school (Portland Christian in Louisville) gave me the chance to be with people who would sing at the drop of a hat–and still do! Last summer, a group of about 15 met up at Mike Linnigs, a popular, casual seafood restaurant in Louisville. When it came time for the blessing, someone started, “Praise God From Who All Blessings Flow” and we all joined in. It was really a “moment”– reminded me of high school.

    • That’s a fabulous idea! What a joyous way to spread Jesus in a restaurant!
      When Josh and Gina were in a college chorus, the group visited Carlsbad Caverns and burst into song. The ranger reprimanded them and they had to stop. Not a music person, obviously! 🙂
